James Stoltman, emeritus professor of anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is an expert in North American archaeology.He
supports the theory of a pre-Clovis North American occupation."My own feeling is a pre-Clovis entity is going to turn up here," he
says."The Wisconsin ones are among the most convincing." Yet Stoltman is a cautious scientist and balks at the notion that the main migration occurred before the Bering Strait crossing.
expresses the fallback position of Clovis First supporters - from "Only Clovis First" to "Mostly Clovis First."In other words, there may have been a scattering of people here and there, but the main migration was through the Bering Strait corridor 11,500 years ago.Says Stoltman
: "Clovis was first in a large area of North America, filling up an empty area, with no resistance [from other people] and rapid spread."
